[JUSTIN]

HEY, GUYS.

JUSTIN FINCH HERE ON THIS MONDAY, DECEMBER 21-ST.

TODAY, WE'RE TAKING A LOOK AT THE CLIMATE DEAL WORLD LEADERS
SIGNED OFF ON IN DENMARK.

AND, THE LAST PLAY OF THE WEEK OF 20-09 IS COMING UP TOO.

GET READY -- CHANNEL ONE NEWS STARTS. NOW!


AFTER SOME TWO WEEKS OF TALKS IN COPENHAGEN, DENMARK, THE
WORLD HAS A CLIMATE DEAL.

IT'S A THREE-PAGE DOCUMENT CALLED THE COPENHAGEN ACCORD. IT'S
NOT AN ENFORCEABLE LAW. INSTEAD IT'S REALLY A LIST OF GOALS THAT
COUNTRIES WANT TO MEET.

IT'S THE END RESULT OF DOWN-TO-THE-WIRE DEALMAKING BETWEEN
THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD.
we are ready to get this done today. But there has to be movement on all sides to
recognize that it is better for us to act than to talk.

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S POINTED SPEECH AT CHINA CAME AFTER *THIS*
MEETING WITH THE CHINESE PREMIER. CHINA HAD STALLED
NEGOTIATIONS BY REFUSING TO OPENLY SHARE INFORMATION ABOUT
ITS EMISSIONS CUTS. THAT DIDN'T STOP PRESIDENT OBAMA FROM GATE-
CRASHING A PRIVATE MEETING LATER BETWEEN China AND LEADERS from
other countries.

are you guys ready for me, or do you guys need to talk some more. It’s up to you.

THE DRAMA DIDN'T END THERE AS PRESS SECRETARY ROBERT GIBBS HAD
TO MANHANDLE THE AMERICAN REPORTERS INTO THE ROOM.

no press no press

hold on, I’ve got to get my american guys in, everybody else got in

no no no.

my guys get in just like your guys got in, this is a joint meeting, my guys get in or we are
leaving the meeting

THOSE WERE SOME TENSE MOMENTS AS THE CLIMATE CHANGE SUMMIT
CAME TO A CLOSE. WE HAD A CHANCE TO TALK WITH CBS NEWS'S
CHARLIE D'AGATA WHO WAS IN COPENHAGEN.

Thank you Justin. At the end of 2 tough weeks of negotiations, we have something like
an agreement. President Obama called it meaningful. and at its core it has an agreement
between the united states and some of the biggest world's polluters. you've got China,
India, and in addition to that developing nations like South Africa and brazil. They've all
decided to put together a 30-billion dollar fund that will be given to poorer nations. And
they are going to give transparency between one another to try to keep their own
caps/emissions down. Now is this exactly what everybody wanted? Absolutely not. Is this
a broad trade agreement with 190 countries on board? It isn't. and a lot of climate
campaigners say they haven't gone far enough but it is a step forward certainly an
agreement between the united states and the biggest polluters like China and India.

WE ALSO ASKED HIM JUST HOW BIG THIS CLIMATE CHANGE SUMMIT
WAS?

Certainly the world has seen nothing like the scale of this global summit. 15,000 people
involved, 192 world leaders including President Obama Including leaders from biggest
countries in the world. And it's a testament to how important this issue of global
warming has become and how it has become a pressing issue that so many countries are
involved in, so many countries want to find a solution to. And that's why it's a little
disappointing if we speak to some of the delegates here, they were hoping for further
steps forward, positivity, something that could be enforced, something that was
internationally accepted. so i don't think this was the end. it fell short of what many
people were expecting, what many people were hoping but just the fact that so many
people were gathered is an indication of how important this has become to world leaders,
to the economy, to saving the plant, and to moving forward. so this is just the first step in
what will probably be a much more accelerated attention toward global warming and
what the world and the u.s., in our case, can do about it.

[JUSTIN]

THANKS CHARLIE. THE PRESIDENT CALLED THE PLAN TO LIST WHAT
ACTIONS NATIONS WILL TAKE TO CUT GLOBAL WARMING POLLUTION A
MEANINGFUL BREAKTHROUGH.

BUT HE ALSO SAID RICH NATIONS LIKE THE U.S. AND POORER COUNTRIES
HAVE VERY DIFFERENT POINTS OF VIEW, AND IN ORDER TO GO FORWARD,
THEY HAVE TO OVERCOME THEIR DIFFERENCES.

OKAY, COMING UP NEXT, JESSICA HAS THE DAY'S HEADLINES.

[JESSICA]

WE'RE GOING TO START OFF WITH A HUGE STORM THAT HIT THE EAST
COAST OVER THE WEEKEND.

IT STARTED WITH TORRENTIAL RAINS IN FLORIDA BUT AS IT HEADED
NORTH THAT RAIN TURNED INTO SNOW.

THE STORM STRANDED TRAVELERS, KNOCKED OUT ELECTRICTY AND
BURIED THE EAST COAST UNDER MORE THAN 2 FEET OF SNOW IN SOME
PLACES LIKE NEW JERSEY AND PENNSYLVANIA

FOR SOME IT WAS A TIME TO HAVE FUN.

BUT FOR THOSE IN RETAIL.THE TIMING WAS AWFUL

Very nervous. The weather is terrible. As I said it's the biggest shopping day of the year
for us.

STORE OWNERS ARE HOPING AS THE SNOW MELTS SHOPPERS WILL COME
OUT AND MAKE THOSE LAST MINUTE PURCHASES.

DESPITE THE WEATHER, SENATORS HELD A SPECIAL SESSION OVER THE
WEEKEND.AND DEMOCRATS SAY THEY NOW HAVE THE 60 VOTES THEY
NEED TO PASS HEALTH CARE REFORM

I intend to vote for cloture and vote for health care reform

THE HOLD OUT WAS NEBRASKA SENATOR BEN NELSON, WHO AGREED TO
VOTE YES AFTER DEMOCRATS REWORDED A BAN ON FEDERAL DOLLARS
BEING USED TO PAY FOR ABORTIONS.
THE BILL WOULD EXPAND HEALTH INSURANCE TO 31 MILLION
AMERICANS, PROHIBIT INSURANCE COMPANIES FROM DENYING
COVERAGE BECAUSE OF PRE EXISTING CONDITIONS OR DROPPING
COVERAGE IF SOMEONE GETS SICK

BUT IT DOES NOT INCLUDE THE CONTROVERSIAL PUBLIC OPTION, WHICH
WOULD HAVE PROVIDED A HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN FROM THE
GOVERNMENT

NOW HOW WILL THIS BILL BE FUNDED? DEMOCRATS SAY IN PART BY
CUTTING BACK ON MEDICARE, THE GOVERNMENT HEALTH INSURANCE
FOR THOSE 65 AND OLDER.

TAXING EXPENSIVE INSURANCE PLANS AND ADDING OTHER TAXES, LIKE
A NEW ONE ON PEOPLE WHO USE TANNING SALONS

THESE TAX HIKES ARE WHY REPUBLICANS ARE AGAINST THE BILL

"this is a train wreck of historic proportions"

THE SENATE HOPES TO VOTE ON THE BILL THIS WEEK. IT MUST STILL BE
MERGED WITH THE HOUSE BILL BEFORE THE PRESIDENT CAN SIGN IT
INTO LAW.

AND FINALLY A LOT OF PEOPLE AREN'T HAPPY ABOUT THE PRIVACY
CHANGES TO FACEBOOK.

AT THE BEGINNING OF THE MONTH, FACEBOOK REQUIRED USERS TO
REVIEW AND UPDATE THEIR PRIVACY SETTINGS.

FACEBOOK USERS ARE NOW ABLE TO CUSTOMIZE OR SELECT A PRIVACY
SETTING FOR EACH PIECE OF CONTENT.

FOR EXAMPLE, USERS CAN CHOOSE IF THEY WANT "FRIENDS" "FRIENDS
OF FRIENDS" OR "EVERYONE" TO SEE THEIR PHOTOS, POSTS OR STATUS
UPDATES

BUT IF YOU'RE OVER THE AGE OF 18, CHOOSING THE "EVERYONE" SETTING
MEANS NOT JUST FACEBOOK USERS BUT EVERYONE ON THE INTERNET

THE EXCEPTION IS FOR PEOPLE UNDER 18, THE "EVERYONE" SETTING
SENDS INFORMATION TO FRIENDS OF FRIENDS

STILL THE PRIVACY ADVOCACY GROUP "THE ELECTRONIC PRIVACY
INFORMATION CENTER" OR EPIC FILED A COMPLAINT AGAINST
FACEBOOK, AND IT'S ASKED THE FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION TO LOOK
INTO THE CHANGES

FACEBOOK SAYS IT'S ALREADY TALKED WITH GOVERNMENT
REGULATORS AND IT'S DISAPPOINTED THAT EPIC IS REFUSING TO TALK
TO WITH THEM DIRECTLY

ACCORDING TO FACEBOOK, MORE THAN 350-MILLION PEOPLE ARE ACTIVE
USERS, THAT'S MORE THAN THE POPULATION OF THE U-S.

AND IF YOU'RE ONE OF THOSE USERS, REMEBER TO CHECK OUT OUR
CHANNELONE FACEBOOK PAGE.

NOW IT'S TIME FOR THE LAST PLAY OF THE WEEK IN 2009. THIS ONE TAKES
US TO A FOOTBALL FIELD IN LOUISIANA FOR ANOTHER AMAZING PLAY.

CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL LINES UP FOR A TWO POINT CONVERSION.

QUARTERBACK WILL BRISCOE TAKES THE SNAP, FAKES THE HAND OFF,
AND SENDS A BEHIND THE BACK PASS TO TEAMMATE, SHEDRICK DAVIS,
IN THE ENDZONE!

WE HAVE TO SEE THAT AGAIN!

BRISCOE DROPS BACK, SPOTS HIS RECEIVER, AND LOBS THE BALL RIGHT
IN TO HIS HANDS!

CENTRAL WON, 58 TO 0.

OF COURSE WE WANT TO SEE WHAT COOL THINGS YOUR SCHOOL'S
ATHLETES ARE DOING THIS SCHOOL YEAR. SO GO TO "PLAY OF THE
WEEK" ON CHANNELONE.COM AND UPLOAD YOUR BEST STUFF.

[JUSTIN]

HAVE YOU EVER HEARD THE EXPRESSION "PAY IT FORWARD?" IT'S WHEN
SOMEONE DOES SOMETHING NICE FOR YOU AND THEN YOU PASS ON
THAT ACT OF KINDNESS BY DOING SOMETHING NICE FOR SOMEONE
ELSE.AND IT KEEPS GOING AND GOING.

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED IN ONE TEXAS TOWN. STEVEN FABIAN HAS THE
STORY.

[STEVEN]
IT'S WHEN PEOPLE SPREAD KINDNESS TO OTHERS. AND THEN THE
RECIPIENTS OF THAT KINDESS DO SOMETHING NICE FOR EVEN MORE
PEOPLE, CREATING A RIPPLE EFFECT.


CARTER HIGH SCHOOL IN SOUTH DALLAS, TEXAS DIDN'T ALWAYS HAVE A
BASKETBALL LOCKER ROOM THIS NICE.

IT USED TO BE DETERIORATING, OLD, AND CRAMPED.

NOW IT LOOKS LIKE THIS: A FRESH COAT OF PAINT, NEW CARPET, STOOLS
AND FLAT SCREEN TV'S.

AND ALL THANKS TO AN UNLIKELY GROUP,

ATHLETES FROM ONE OF THEIR RIVALS,

HIGHLAND PARK HIGH SCHOOL IN NORTH DALLAS.

I think it’s generous and kind-hearted to come and drive miles away from your school to
ours and help us with the locker room, making it better. That's very nice of them.

BUT RATHER THAN PAY HIGHLAND PARK BACK FOR THEIR GENEROSITY,
THE PRINCIPAL OF CARTER HIGH SCHOOL DECIDED THEY WOULD PAY IT
FORWARD.

We want to make sure everybody has an opportunity to give if you have not.

SO AFTER HIGHLAND PARK HIGH SCHOOL HELPED OUT CARTER HIGH
SCHOOL, CARTER HIGH SCHOOL DECIDED TO HELP OUT TO PINKSTON
HIGH AND LEND A HAND.

TO ONE OF THEIR ATHLETES WHO WASN'T ABLE TO TAKE THE FIELD: 14-
YEAR-OLD JARED WILLIAMS WHO WAS LEFT PARALYZED AFTER BEING
INJURED IN A GAME.

THE GOAL WAS TO RAISE 500 DOLLARS. AND STUDENTS PITCHED IN WHAT
THEY COULD.

Not a lot. Just a little. What I had today, a little of my lunch money.

BUT EVERY BIT COUNTS AND AT THIS FOOTBALL CAME, CARTER'S
PRINCIPAL PRESENTED JARED'S MOTHER, ARLENA WILLIAMS WITH A
CHECK FOR 1200 DOLLARS.
I said earlier that I was going to keep it together but it's so hard when so many people
love you that don't even know anything about you.

CARTER'S PRINCIPAL SAYS THIS IS ALL MORE THAN A GAME, IT'S
REALITY.

AND HE'S NOW CHALLENGING PINKSTON TO PAY IT FORWARD TO
SOMEONE ELSE.

STEVEN FABIAN, CHANNEL ONE NEWS.


[JUSTIN]

MAYBE THIS GIVES YOU SOME IDEAS TO PAY IT FORWARD.

THAT'S OUR TIME FOR TODAY.

I'M JUSTIN FINCH.

WE'LL SEE YOU BACK HERE ON TUESDAY.
